| Nice little film about people
This is one of those films where little happens but it still a good film to watch. It tells the story of Jeff, the manager of a run down bowling alley, who tries to save it when it faces closure. Combined with complications when his sister and friend come to stay. The film is more about people than plot. There are a number of interesting characters and despite the lack of action, the film does keep your interest. The bad things for me were that the title made no sense and seemed irrelevant. The film also seemed too serious. It felt like there were moments that should have been or were intended to be slightly amusing but weren't. Overall if you like a film about people rather than action then go for this. It's a nice film that flows along just fast enough to keep you interested, with believable characters.
